Shiphay is an outstanding Converter Academy, judged to be so in all areas by Ofsted and this has been maintained for the past eleven years.
We became an Academy in 2011, amongst the first in the country, and are excited by the opportunities this brings to our pupils and their families. We are a member of the Riviera Education Trust and work in partnership with two other outstanding local schools, Oldway Primary School and Roselands Primary School. We are a forward thinking, highly regarded, supportive and positive school.
We have 2 Teaching Assistant posts available for hard working, creative and ambitious candidates. We are seeking to appoint two Teaching Assistants to provide academic and pastoral support within the primary years. Both of these posts are fixed-term contracts until the end of the current academic year (August 2020), but it is likely that there will be opportunities for these posts to become permanent in due course.
Integral to the role is supporting pupils at lunchtimes. The successful candidates will be positive, flexible and have a proven record of experience working with primary pupils within a school setting. They must have English and Mathematics GCSE or GCE O Level or equivalent and preference will be given to those with further relevant qualifications such as NVQ.
